Sport, nutrition and socio-professional integration for vulnerable youth with “Sport dans la Ville”

The association «  Sport dans la ville » has been working since 1998 to promote social and professional integration through sport acitivities. Every year, 5 500 young people from underprivileged areas aged from 7 to 20 years old are benefitting from the association’s programmes.

The Carrefour Foundation is engaged alongside « Sport dans la Ville » in 2018 on several of its projects, among which the « Job dans la ville » programme. It aims to enhance accompaniment and professional integration of 950 young people, thanks to a sponsorship provided by employees of partner companies. In addition, the Carrefour Foundation is supporting the Sport and Nutrition programme, in partnership with the VIF association. The idea is to raise awareness of youths and their parents on the importance of healthy eating and sport practice. As it was a success in Lyon in 2017, the project is now being spread in 2018 to many other centers of the association.

In 2018, the goals are numerous: sensitizing 2000 young people and 1500 families to the importance of regular physic activities and healthy food diet, accompaniment of 6000 young people, and training of 120 social workers on this issue.
